Like many people in this world, I make mistakes. No one is perfect, especially me. I am not the perfect wife, the perfect mom, or a perfect person. I do not regret my mistakes I made in the past because in that moment it felt like the right decision. I view my mistakes as a lesson to learn from. Before I met my amazing husband whom I am married to now, I was married to a guy that did not show me the love I deserved. At a very young age I was blinded by love and jumped into a marriage for all the wrong reasons. I gave my all and never got the same affection in return. An accident had to happen in order for me to open my eyes and realize that this marriage was not a marriage I wanted to be in. I know that sounds awful, but there comes a time where you have to know your worth. Even after my accident I was still the one to blame, I was never right, and I was never a priority. This is not what a marriage is supposed to be. That day I packed my bags, called my parents to pick me up and left. As I sat in my room that day crying and saying to myself “why is this happening to me?” and realizing I had to end my marriage, something I never thought I would have to do. I knew I deserved more; this mistake taught me that I was worthy of love, deserved to be treated differently, and be loved the same way I love. Even though my marriage was falling apart I had to try to work on it, yet I was the only one willing to work on it. After my divorce I swore off love or the idea of being with someone and letting them in. My husband came into my life unexpectedly, never in a million years did expect this amazing human being to come into my life. He gave me the ability to love again. He made me feel safe and beautiful the first day I met him, it was the weirdest, most amazing feeling ever. A feeling that I never felt before, EVER! He became my best friend, my hero, and my soul mate. This sign is above our bed, with one of my favorite verses from the bible. This verse means so much to me because I would pray to God to send me a man who would love me and make me feel like the princess I am, and God answered my prayers and sent me my soul mate. I hope this helps anyone who is in a bad relationship and feel unappreciated realize that you are worthy of love and that love is out there. Do not settle for anything less. I am now happily married with a beautiful baby boy and I would not trade it for anything in the world.
